Re: Aikido in football
Not sure if it was just a movie or it actually happened.
A Notre Damm football coach had his guys doing ballet.
The think is that with any cross-training you do spend quite a bit of time with the excess baggage so to speak. Perhaps some exercises in Aikido could be of benefit but a good chunk of it would be a waste of time to someone who is dead serious about his football. The opposite holds true.
I am all for cross-taining - my Judo helps my Aikido - but the further you go afield the more excess baggage you get. Now if you happen to like playing football then no problems.
